The Master is plotting against the
Doctor, yapping about after centuries of conflict between them, the
Doctor's certain death is now certain. The Master has set a deadly trap
in the Doctor's own TARDIS. The Doctor lets the Master know that he has
heard these plans. The Master switches off the video but the Doctor overhears
the next plan: some evil death on Planet Zeston Four. The Doctor calmly
tells him he has overheard that, too. Anyway, he wants to tell the Master
something on the planet Terserus. On this planet, the life forms
communicate by modulating gastric emissions.
There, the Doctor tells his companion
Emma that he is retiring and will marry her. The Master welcomes the duo
to the Spikes of Doom. The Doctor fakes a worried look but he has gone
back in time and bribed the architect of this trap and welcomes the
Master to the Sofa of Reasonable Comfort which he and Emma are sitting in,
it springing from the trap. The Doctor looks worried again as the Master
tells them he bribed the architect one more time by giving him a dinner...there
is a trap door directly beneath the Doctor and Emma... which leads to the
500 foot drop into the sewers of Terserus.
The Master is the one who falls into a trap
door. The Doctor anticipated the Master's bribe and went back to the architect
in the past and gave him dinner first. The Doctor is very calm about all
of it. The pair are about to leave but the Master, older, after 312 years
of climbing out, confronts them. The Doctor calmly asks him if he is going
to his terrible revenge thingie. The Daleks are with the Master now; the
only ones who would work with him since they do not have noses and the
Master has spent 312 years in the sewers. The Daleks have also augmented
the Master's body with superior Dalek technology -- a sucker in his hand
which Emma suspects the Master doesn't know how to use.
The Master comes
at the Doctor, "Die, Doctor, die!" The Doctor moves aside with
Emma so that the Master falls into the sewer again. The Doctor winks. The
Master, older and with longer white hair, returns 624 years later after
climbing out again. The Doctor and Emma run and the Daleks and the Master
give chase. A Dalek inadvertently knocks the Master back into the sewer!
It is 936 years later and the Master uses a walker, "Wait for me! Wait
The Doctor and Emma run and find the corridors all look
the same. The Doctor rushes her toward two large doors, "We'll be safe
in here." They open the doors to find hundreds of Daleks...
The Doctor and Emma are tied up and the Doctor
keeps telling a questioning Emma, "I'll explain later." She
wanted to know why the Daleks didn't kill him... why they changed their
mind and tied him up instead. The Master is back again and rejuvenated
to his younger looking self and, the Doctor notices, affixed with breasts...Daleks
bumps which detect orin charged emissions and have locator beam locators.
He is also helping the Daleks perfect the zetronic beam and they will use
it which will give them the whole universe in
five minutes... the Doctor calmly explains. Emma asks the
Daleks why they have chairs on a Dalek ship. They tell her they will explain
The Daleks order the Master to set the Zetronic beam on and he says,
"I obey." A Dalek whispers to the Doctor that the Master will
be eliminated after his use. The Doctor breaks wind to give the Master
this info without the Daleks knowing about it. It works. The Daleks hit
the Zatronic device controller when they fire at the Master. They also
seem to hit the Doctor, who falls onto his back. Only the Doctor can stop
the controller as it will now implode as well as explode. The Master
explains regeneration to Emma as the Doctor begins to regenerate... bright
lights firing at Emma and the Master...
The next Doctor explains he is sorry but
he is cute, handsome, and a lick in the mirror; conceited. He calls the
Master the camp one and says, "Nice tits." The Daleks ask for
the Doctor's help. He thinks this is a great way to start out by saving
his oldest foes. He kisses Emma, who can live with this new handsome persona.
He tells her to get champagne out of the TARDIS. He thinks he will particularly
good at rewiring. He isn't. A massive shock and blast floors him.
The Doctor regenerates into a shy Doctor: he is shy of
girls and won't look at Emma and won't face her eye to eye. He skips about
a bit and looks older with less hair. He will not stare the Master eye
to eye. He goes off into another room and a there is a blast.
A new Doctor emerges from after this blast. He should
have unplugged first. Emma looks pleased at this very handsome Doctor.
Dual energy is blasted around the room and floors the Doctor, hitting him
in the back. He falls. The Master tells Emma that he cannot regenerate
now...the pure zatronic energy robbed him of his regenerative powers. The
Doctor dies saying, "I'll explain..."
Emma tells the Doctor he cannot die -- he's too brave,
too kind, too silly. He is like Father Christmas, The Wizard of Oz, Scooby
Doo. The Master calls him the best and bravest of all foes. The Master
renounces evil. So do the Daleks who will honor the Doctor, their former
foe. Emma says the Doctor has never been cruel and was never cowardly.
It will never be safe to be scared again.
Against all known science, the Doctor regenerates again.
Emma postulates that perhaps the universe cannot bear to be without the
Doctor either. Emma tells this new Doctor that the things on her chest
are not Dalek bumps but actual breasts. This Doctor is a blond woman! Emma
tells this female Doctor, "You're not the man I fell in love with."
This Doctor is very energetic and optimistic. She takes out her sonic screwdriver
which she notices has three settings. Emma wishes she would not fool with
it. Emma seems to run off. The Master thinks the Doctor is gorgeous. The
Doctor seems to fancy the Master. The pair of them leave the ship arm in
